BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — The Alabama B.A.S.S. Nation got involved in multiple legislative and political activiities in 2012 across the state to promote fishing, access and protecting the rights of anglers.
Two major bass fishing conservation issues -- access and lead bans -- are on the table in the Sportsmen's Heritage Act of 2012. B.A.S.S. and 39 other outdoors organizations have signed on in support of it.
The National Marine Manufacturer's Association urges: "Say NO to untested E15"
I think this called-for ban on the use of lead in lures and ammo is misguided at best, and honestly, it's downright unreasonable.
The Environmental Protection Agency announced that it will delay a final decision on Growth Energy's petition to allow ethanol blends up to E15 into the gas market until more testing data is available.
